New Photo Shoot Destination

So, lately... I've been trying to add some "exploring" time in between my unpacking and sewing time. Ever since we moved off base, I've been seeing Korea in a whole other light, and it's WONDERFUL! I didn't mind it before, maybe because we've only been here for 5 months, but now I'm REALLY liking it. The people are the friendliest... is it possible for them to be too friendly? The food just keeps blowing my mind, and some of the sights I've found from places that are only minutes away from my house, are just amazing me.

Which brings me to this place... I found it as the Mr. and I were driving around the other day, and I just HAD to go back to it. It's only 2 minutes away from my house, and just beautiful. It's a "hyanggyo" which refers to an institution that was established by the government at the local areas in the Joseon Period. Students learned the doctrines and history of Confucianism and led memorial ceremonies in the repose for their ancestors (this is all according to the sign that I read). It all sort of goes above my head, and I look at this place as a BEAUTIFUL photo shoot destination. So, for all who are interested, this is one place I can take you to. Oh what's that? You didn't know?? Yes, I've started a photography business over here. Lots of people have been encouraging and inspiring me to start up (you know who you are!) and so I have. You can visit my website here, but just know, it is NO WHERE NEAR DONE! I'm accepting clients now, and my calendar is wide open for you all! I'll be blogging soon about how to "book me" and some other great photo sights I can take you to, but for now, I leave you with this wonderful location.

Door... lots and lots of doors.. have you I told you lately how much I LOVE doors?

And again... another set of doors... but common, how could I resist teal/robin's egg blue!

Pin It!


  1. Wow, what a great little spot! I love all the texture and character it has.

  2. Karen, I was catching up on your blog today and the fun thing for me was I could hear your voice in my head as I read what you were writing. You (and your voice) make me smile. Great pictures, wonderful stories, beautiful friend. Blessings on you, girl!
